Dropouts make less

While everyone argues over whose fault it is that so many students still drop out of high school in this modern day era, the question, "Who stands to lose the most?" doesn't get much debate.

It is the student himself/herself with the most to lose.

Here is another story with some statistics that seems to say that American dropouts take a big wage hit compared to non-dropouts, in fact a larger percentage hit than many other countries.

I started a career in the YMCA. A great number of jobs were available at the $7 to $10 an hour scale. To get to the next level of pay and make $50k and much, much more, you had to have a degree. Didn’t really matter what your degree was, just had to have a degree.
